I saw rolling shutter consequences on the Sony a6300 [B&H|Amazon] while I was down in Miami for a multi-day hands-on evaluation, but it didn't bother me very much -- it was a stupid fast pan, and for my everyday shooting, rolling shutter is a non-issue. This is not true for everyone though, so now that I have the a6300 on extended loan, here's a dedicated rolling shutter test comparing it to the a6000. Warning: not necessarily the best idea to do a test (especially the edit) while on cold medicine.
For some people, a rolling shutter is beyond terrible: it can render a camera unfit for purpose. I get it, it makes sense. It's why high-end productions insist upon it; it's one reason why Blackmagic's URSA Mini with switchable rolling/global shutter is so interesting (though for the moment they're shipping without the global shutter option - I guess it's not an easy thing).
In any case, as part of my extended time with a6300 (you may have seen my 120fps comparison of the a6300 to the FS5, or yesterday's post about a6300's low light performance as a stills camera - awesome!), today I'm sharing with you my rolling shutter tests (all 1080/24p).
The first is what I call the "obligatory fence post" test. Here's the setup we used:
The second is what I call the "stupid fast pan and bus" test. Here's the setup for this one:
